How true is this: “Wanting a strong woman is a sign of homosexuality. Any masculine man wants a submissive woman” ?

  • Wrong on four levels.
    -First, equating lack of masculinity with homosexuality. The most masculine guy I know is also the gayest. The closest thing he even HAS to a stereotypical gay mannerism is expressing attraction to men (and is that even really a stereotype?).
    -Second, equating weakness with submissiveness. A great many (probably most) submissives are people who've taken on massive responsibilities, and so are under too much pressure to be psychologically healthy. So they find someone they trust, and cede control, letting someone else steer for a while. The ability to let go of power is the surest sign of strength there is. That doesn't mean that submissiveness is strength, but it does mean the opposite is false.
    -Third, equating psychological behavioral makeup with sexual proclivities. This is perhaps the most understandable, since there are PATTERNS that sync up here, but they form general rules AT BEST.
    -Fourth, misunderstanding the core of how sexuality WORKS. A homosexual man doesn't (sexually) want a woman at all; that's what being homosexual means.

    The statement also, if taken more generally, indicates a gross misunderstanding of how a healthy relationship works: if one party has all the strength, and one party is just holding back while being supported by the other, who's taking on all the responsibilities, that's not love, that's slavery. In a healthy relationship, you support each other; first one of you and then the other stepping up to take the reins when your partner needs a break, or in areas where you're better suited. Sometimes one partner does this more often than the other; that's okay, but wanting all strength to be vested in one partner means you don't really have a partnership.

Most Helpful Guy

  • Bullshit.

    For one, lower levels of masculinity do not equal higher levels of gayness. Those aren't connected like that.

    For 2, strong is not the opposite of submissive. Less strong doesn't equal more submissive. Those aren't connected either.

    And for 3, neither statement is true by itself either. Wanting a strong woman is a sign of liking strong women. Notice: women. So it's not gay.

    And any masculine man can want whatever they want bc as already said masculinity doesn't correlate to sexuality. So it doesn't correlate to sexual or romantic preference. Wanting a submissive woman doesn't make a man masculine and being masculine doesn't make a man want submissive women (or women at all).

  • Total nonsense.

    Modern luxuries have turned people into wimps. In the past women had to be strong. They didn't have much choice unless they were wealthy.

    Being submissive and being weak are two entirely different things. Being submissive does not mean she is weak. Being strong does not mean she's not submissive.

    Strong men are usually with strong women.

  • My guy is very masculine, and Inam sub in the bedroom. So I guess it it reasonable true.

    • Thats not how thinking works.

    • @Guffrus That's how it works for us. Assertive in RL. Sub in the bedroom.

    • GAY though... think about it. Maybe you are bisexual or something i dont know, but assuming you were straight you are saying that because you are a sub the gender of the person dominating you doesn't matter. Its completely retarded and obviously wrong.

  • Utter load of rubbish.

    you want someone compatible.

    for me, a Strong, Confident, Independent, individuality are all very attractive / sexy attributes.

    the above also work very well for BDSM submissive, as opposed to the porn and Hollywood submissive

    i do find it really annoying when the word submissive is used as if the person has no drive etc.

    a lot of submissive are actually business leaders, top executives etc

  • No, its not true. Their are many men out there who like strong women, doesn't mean they are homosexual. Its just a preference, its because of their submissive personality. And the thing about masculine men wanting submissive women, that's also normal, many men have a preferences for dominating.

  • That doesn't make room for personality differences, which have nothing to do with one's sexual orientation.

  • Not true at all. It takes a strong man to attract a strong woman. Weak men are insecure and seek partners even weaker. In business there's a saying: "A's hire A's, B's hire C's"

  • Fellas, this just in: Wanting a woman is gay

  • I wouldn't count on it.

  • I personally just don't prefer women physically stronger than me. Some guys (few) are into that though.

    • I don’t mean physically

    • Mentally then? Sure I don't mind if a girl is mentally stronger. It's a great pillar to have as support in a partner

  • That's not true. Basically any masculine man is going to be clashing with a strong willed woman and it's just not worth the effort, but that doesn't mean it's gay. Fighting and debating over everything just isn't pleasant, but being submissive also isn't the same as being feminine. Any masculine man isn't going to put up with the disrespect that a woman with masculine energy is likely to give him, but that doesn't mean that being with the submissive woman is more hetero.

  • It depends what strong means.

  • False

  • Nah, every power couple has a strong woman and a strong man.

    • Plus, plenty of gay men are very dominant, and plenty of gay men like very feminine submissive boys so, yeah put 2 and 2 together

  • I want a strong woman because that's what I've been taught. If you don't want to be strong, y'all should change the educational curriculum.

  • What an erroneous oversimplification of people's personal preferences that hardly argues its own case.

  • Not true at all. I’m 6’7” 260 athletic fit. I like strong and athletic

  • Zero

  • Are you a strong woman?

  • False. Also, there are all kinds of strength. Feminine strength is very real and just about the most amazing force their is. Females acting like men is probably the worst "strength" I can imagine.

  • True story bro.
